Life event history analysis: Two days seminar in honour of Professor Ørnulf Borgan's 70th anniversary.

We invite you to a two-day seminar celebrating Professor Ørnulf Borgans many and substantial contributions to statistics in general and life event history analysis in particular. The seminar takes place in Auditorium 3 in Helga Engs House, Blindern Campus, University of Oslo, from Thursday 6th 11:00 to Friday 7th, 14:00, 2022.

For the seminar we have invited several of Ørnulf's key collaborators to give talks. We hope many other colleagues, students and friends will participate in this celebration of Ørnulf and his outstanding career as Professor of Statistics at the University of Oslo.


There will be served a simple lunch both days. Due to this we would like you to register for the meeting using this link.
